his "song shop" project.
From the ArticleďI feel Iím getting to function almost as a pseudo therapist for kids,Ē he says.

While the fans certainly feel more connected to Bemis hearing him sing about whatever issues they were struggling with or random thought they wanted him to sing, it also helps Bemis connect to those who love his work: ďI really write and play the songs imagining someone hearing...

From the InterviewI think in this day in ageÖ Well first of all, on a creative level, to me there is definitely no such thing as writing too much music. You continue to develop and you canít evolve unless you are working on music or at least thinking about it. I never get burnt out on the act of songwriting, especially with Song Shop where Iím writing hundreds of songs a year. Itís just constantly a way to improve my singing and my songwriting and to stay in it. And itís also the thing I love to do the most.

You can download the new
song "So Good"

about the connections between
...Is a Real Boy
and the band's upcoming album.
From the ArticleThere's a sense of chaos and an anything-can-happen sort of excitement. That was one of the defining characteristics of "ÖIs A Real Boy' and why people connected with it, was a certain amount of "I donít give a fuck."

Max Bemis of
about the band's new album.
From the InterviewChanging labels did have a lot of the do with the creative process, with feeling like I could really put my heart and soul into something without straining it or having to be something to somebody because being on an independent label seeing us for exactly what we are. There was a little less pressure to be something that was more mass consumption-ready. Jason Tate on 02/04/12 - 12:16 PM 61 Replies -
